Managed File Transfer and Service Oriented Architectures: Working in Concert
Service oriented architectures (SOA), cloud computing, and web services garner an enormous share of publicity when discussing today’s IT infrastructures. However, a key ingredient that isn’t discussed as often is managed file transfer (MFT). Today, Flux released a white paper detailing how SOA and MFT complement each other in today’s modern, decentralized computing environments and ecosystems.
